What seal is he referring to? The input shaft seal? And yes, I would think it is replaceable by disassembly of clutch.

Any warranty on junk yard part? Maybe you can take written statement from mechanic and get partial refund? Or if still under warranty, a replacement?

He didnt told me the name of seal, but I hv seen my self he put leak detector nose at the clutch and gas was leaking from pulley side. Warranty was of 3 days and leak was soo minor that it took a month when I declared that OK now AC is not cooling well.

3 days on 300 dollar air compressor? Rediculous! Ripoff! Sometimes they post time limits/no refunds but will still do deal with reasonable customers.
